If Susan Sarandon isn’t in a movie this year, chances are Jason Bateman is

I’m beginning to think that the cancellation of “Arrested Development” was the best thing that could have ever happened for Jason Bateman’s career. Since it went off the air the Rye native has gotten a starring role in “The Kingdom,” which is already garnering Oscar buzz for ’08. He’s also in “Juno” with Allison Janey, Jennifer Garner, and one of his AD costar, Michael Cera. Throw in “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium,” and a part in the Will Smith superhero romance flick “Tonight, He Comes” and — well, it’s almost enough to make us all forget about “Teen Wolf Too.”
